Alaska Silver Salmon Fishing
Best months: July & August
Coho salmon, also known as silvers, are one of the favorites on the Nushagak River and we are typically the only lodge open during this time of year on The Nush. Silver salmon hit hard, rip line, and put on an acrobatic show. Silver salmon action on the Nushagak is absolutely incredible.
The AK Department of Fish and Game limit is 5 coho salmon per person per day on the Nushagak River and guests can easily take home a full fish box. Silver salmon fishing methods on the Nushagak River include drifting flies, casting spinners, bouncing eggs or trolling plugs. Alaska silver salmon on the Nushagak average 8- to 12 pounds. 13 to 15 pounds is a BIG silver on The Nush. The best silver fishing has traditionally occurred later in the season.
